Abstract Details

Purpose:

To demonstrate a variety of applications in which intraoperative OCT can assist in anterior segment surgery.

Setting:

Private practice referral center

Methods:

Images and videos were taken with intraoperative OCT during a variety of intraocular surgical procedures to demonstrate the range, quality, and utility of visual information available to assist the surgeon in performing anterior segment procedures.

Results:

Videos and still photographs from intraoperative OCT are used to illustrate improved visualization of structures in the anterior segment including endothelial keratoplasty donor tissue unfolding and positioning, phakic lens positioning and vault, intraocular lenses, lens fragments, minimally invasive glaucoma devices, and deep anterior lamellar keratoplasty surgery.

Conclusions:

Just as OCT has become invaluable for office diagnostics, intraoperative OCT is proving very helpful for lamellar grafts and other forms of anterior segment surgery. Intraoperative OCT allows better visualization of structures not typically appreciated well with the view through a coaxial microscope. Resolution of intraoperative OCT has been improving significantly.
